Ian Kinsler's Power Outage
Ian Kinsler has yet to hit a home run this year.  He is one of 10 regular players to have 0 home runs so far this year.  Last year he hit 17 home runs in 726 plate appearances, or about once every 42.7 plate appearances.  This means that he should already ...

2015 Preseason Prediction #15 - Jose Iglesias
Jose Iglesias was acquired by the Red Sox in a three-way deal that sent Avisail Garcia to the White Sox back in 2013.  His numbers for the Tigers were overall down from what he did with the Sox that year: 2013 AVG OBP SLG BB% K% wRC+ Red Sox 0.330 0.376 0...

2015 Preseason Prediction #12 and #13 - Anthony Gose and Rajai Davis
I'm combining both Anthony Gose and Rajai Davis in one post because they are expected to platoon at the centerfield position.   Davis has been exceptional against LHP: Year AVG OBP SLG wOBA wRC+ 2012 0.285 0.345 0.437 0.340 112 2013 0.319 0.383 0.474 0.37...

2015 Preseason Prediction #8 - J.D. Martinez
It seems like every contending team has a player or 2 to come out of nowhere and provide great value for the team.  That player for the Tigers last year was J.D. Martinez .  Acquired in late Spring Training after the Houston Astros released him, Martinez s...

2015 Preseason Prediction #7 - Justin Verlander
Last year I said this of Justin Verlander , "obviously I'm going on the optimistic side here.  Here's hoping I'm not wrong."  I was wrong. For the 2nd year in a row, Justin Verlander has fallen below expectations.  From 2009-2012, it could be argued that ...

Where Have All the Strikeouts Gone?
Over the past two games, the Tigers' starters have only 3 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings.   Anibal Sanchez had 2 in yesterday's game and David Price only had 1 two days ago.  This is a microcosm of the whole year as the Tigers' starters are only averaging a...

2015 Preseason Prediction #14 - Alfredo Simon
When the Tigers traded Rick Porcello , they were a starting pitcher short in their rotation.  Soon after, they traded Eugenio Suarez and Jonathon Crawford to the Reds for Alfredo Simon .  The reaction for the most part among Tiger fans was unfavorable, ...

2015 Preseason Prediction #11 - Alex Avila
If there's one word to describe Alex Avila , it is "concussion."  For the last few years, Avila has endured many concussion and concussion-like symptoms that have certainly hampered his offensive performance: Year BABIP AVG ISO BB% K% wOBA wRC+ 2011 0.366 ...

2015 Preseason Prediction #9 - Nick Castellanos

2015 Preseason Prediction #6 - Ian Kinsler
Ian Kinsler had a career high in games played and while it wasn't a career high, he led the league in plate appearances (5 short of his career high).  The amount of playing time could have been a factor in why his first half stats were so much better than ...
